|GET FOCUSED. GET CONTROL. GET GROWING.|
Size Does Matter
"Worry about being better; bigger will take care of itself."
People start their own business for many reasons. Some people form or purchase a business because they want to be their own boss. Others have a specific passion or skill that draws them into entrepreneurship. Then there are those that want a lifestyle business; one that allows more free time with family or for other interests. Still others want to create a larger company with many employees and perhaps become a leader in their industry. What do you want? Often business owners don't really know what they want. They don't prepare for the future. Sometimes circumstances put them in a situation that may or may not fit their personal needs and desires. But, you can be in control of your destiny. Take some time to really THINK about what you want your business to become. Make it an intentional decision and base the company's vision on it.
Recently, I had a discussion with three separate insurance agency owners. One developed his business so that it would accommodate the addition of his son and daughter to work in the agency. The second agency owner grew his business large enough so that he could no longer do the selling. He created and grew into a new role as Manager of the business and its employees. The third is an independent agent who just wanted to continue selling insurance. He is doing what he loves and doesn't want any added complications. All three had the same opportunities to expand their business but each chose a different path. They are all happy with how their business fits their personal and financial goals.
Do you want to keep your business small?
Do you want to grow your business substantially?
